Everyday is a new day in my garden – my garden is changing continuously as the summer draws to a close.  There is a lot of greenery thanks to the tomato plants…..but for ripening I’ve brought the fruits of the vines inside.

tomatoes 048     tomatoes 049 tomatoes 050  As you can see, I have many green tomatoes – but how long will it take for these to ripen?  And I have numerous additional green tomatoes on the vines.  There is something very satisfying about growing tomatoes.  Growth happens rapidly.

Our tally so far is three small red ones which we ate 2 or 3 nights ago.  No photo taken alas – maybe I just thought they were too small to really count.

I should have taken a photo of my 3 red tomatoes before we ate them last night.  3 tomatoes – the first produce from our garden!  Delicious!
